Dispute of St. Catherine (?)

Antiveduto Gramatica

The subject here is a matter for debate. It may depict St Domitilla with St. Nereus and St. Achilleus if it is linked to the transfer of the three saint’s relics to Santa Maria in Vallicella in Rome in 1597 (but the men have neither armor nor haloes), St. Constance with St. John and St. Paul (though here again the haloes are missing), or the Dispute of St. Catherine in that the saint is shown between two philosophers counting, a gesture traditionally associated with her.
